A few weeks ago while Spring cleaning, I came upon my old Speedy. Like every New York girl trying to be Carrie Bradshaw circa 1998-2000, I too bought into the Monogram Louis Vuitton trend back then. My first one was a Pouch, which I quickly outgrew, literally, and shipped to my niece for her dress up box. It turns out she wasn't into dressing up, let alone a designer bag perfect for her 5 year old stature and pre-school going. Sigh. Of course she didn't care therefore when took it back and gave it to my best friend who has since made great use of it for loose change and lip gloss. In fact, said best friend is who convinced me today to not let go of my Speedster so easily. Instead of consigning it, we discussed how I might reinvigorate it. Tomorrow my 12 year old Speedy is off to Paris for some personalization inspired by one of Spring's hottest colors - neon citrus. I wonder if my niece will like it.
